Combine dressing ingredients in a jar and season with salt and pepper. Shake well to combine.
Trim ends off the beans, then cut beans in half and place in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave for 1 minute, until just tender. Slice cucumber into thin rounds. Divide rocket, beans and cucumber between individual serving plates.
Cut peaches into quarters, discarding the stones. Tightly wrap each quarter in a slice of prosciutto. Slice haloumi into strips and cut each strip in half. Cut the loaf of ciabatta into thick slices.
Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto-wrapped peaches and pan fry for 1-2 minutes each side, until golden brown and warmed through. Remove from pan onto a plate and carefully wipe pan down. Heat remaining teaspoon oil in the pan, then add the haloumi. Cook for 1-2 minutes each side, until golden. Reduce heat to low, move haloumi to one side and add peaches back to pan to keep warm.
Spray a large chargrill pan with cooking oil and bring to a medium-high heat. Chargrill ciabatta slices, watching carefully to ensure you don’t burn them.
Distribute peaches and haloumi between serving plates on top of salad greens. Drizzle with dressing. Tear some of the ciabatta into pieces and scatter over the top. Serve with extra slices of ciabatta and butter, if desired.
WINE MATCH: Go for a Rosé or a Pinot Gris.
GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: Ensure prosciutto is gluten-free. Use a loaf of gluten-free bread instead of ciabatta.
INGREDIENT NOTES / SWAPS: You can use nectarines instead of peaches.
ALTERNATIVE COOKING METHOD: This meal could be cooked on the barbecue instead of the stove. Ciabatta can be toasted or served fresh instead of chargrilling.
STORING AND REHEATING: Store peaches and haloumi separate to other salad ingredients and reheat in the microwave or frying pan. Dress salad just before serving.
